Penyengat island is a country of aristocrats. This small island is s proof of Malay society union in the past, starting from Malaka, Johor and Riau, until finally they were separated by colonial culture intervention. In Penyengat Island, many great evidences and perseverance of Malay people in their golden era are still existed even though they are neglected. The high Taste buildings give contrast color towards the Malay society who lives around the ares. It feels strange, when they suddenly become slow, and loosing their ethos and left out from other ethnic groups. In Penyengat Island, there was a big mosque named Penyengat Island Great Mosque that was built in 1823 with the initiative of The Young Honorable, King of Abdul Rahman. This mosque length is 19.60 meter and inside of the mosque there are 4 big pillars that hold the building and give sturdy impression to it.

my beautiful country

Indonesia is a beautiful country. It has so many beautiful places to see and to enjoy, not only in Bali but also in another places in this country.

Indonesia consists of 17,508 islands, about 6,000 of which are inhabited. These are scattered over both sides of the equator. The five largest islands are Java, Sumatra, Kalimantan (the Indonesian part of Borneo, New Guinea (shared with Papua New Guinea), and Sulawesi.

At 1,919,440 square kilometers (741,050 sq mi), Indonesia is the world's 16th-largest country in terms of land area. Its average population density is 134 people per square kilometer (347 per sq mi), 79th in the world, although Java, the world's most populous island, has a population density of 940 people per square kilometer (2,435 per sq mi). At 4,884 meters (16,024 ft), Puncak Jaya in Papua is Indonesia's highest peak, and Lake Toba in Sumatra its largest lake, with an area of 1,145 square kilometers (442 sq mi). The country's largest rivers are in Kalimantan, and include the Mahakam and Barito; such rivers are communication and transport links between the island's river settlements.

Indonesia's location on the edges of the Pasific, Eurasian, and Australian tectonic plates makes it the site of numerous volcanoes and frequent earthquakes. Indonesia has at least 150 active vol canoes, including Krakatau and Tambora, both famous for their devastating eruptions in the 19th century. The eruption of the Toba supervolcano , approximately 70,000 years ago, was one of the largest eruptions ever, and a global catastrophe. Recent disasters due to seismic activity include the 2004 tsunami that killed an estimated 167,736 in northern Sumatra, and the Yogyakarta earthquake in 2006. However, volcanic ash is a major contributor to the high agricultural fertility that has historically sustained the high population densities of Java and Bali.

Lying along the equator, Indonesia has a tropical climate, with two distinct monsoonal wet and dry seasons.
